Corpus Christi Procession, June 2

Assumption and St. Juan Diego Parishes are called to come together, Sunday, June 2, to celebrate The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, also known as the Feast of Corpus Christi. Parishioners of all ages are invited to participate in a one-mile procession to celebrate the importance of the Real Presence in the Eucharist, while publicly affirming their faith.

Those interested should meet at noon at the front doors of St. Juan Diego Parish (St. Barnabas Church). We will join their parishioners as they begin the procession coming from their 11AM Mass to process as a group down Main Street towards Assumption, singing Eucharistic songs and hymns before stopping twice to pray. Altars will be set up at the Jehling's Hardware parking lot and Len's Auto Repair, as we proclaim the Word of God and give a Eucharistic blessing. The procession ends with benediction in our Chapel, where the Blessed Sacrament is reposed and placed in the tabernacle.

After the procession, everyone is encouraged to stay for Hospitality Sunday and enjoy donuts and bagels in the Parish Center.
